Super Mario Party is a welcome addition to the library of Switch titles, bringing with it plenty of new game modes and features to keep you entertained. Undoubtedly it will be best to get out at gatherings like Christmas but online play makes it less reliant on those situations.
Super Mario Odyssey is easily one of the best Mario games in a decade and Nintendo has crafted a game full of fun and surprises. It's a beautiful balancing act of the classic gameplay with new features so Odyssey feels familiar yet fresh. Cappy could be a gimmick addition but is actually a stroke of genius. Super Mario Odyssey is a must for Switch owners, young and old, and will no doubt go down as a classic.
Despite a few niggles and the astronomical cost should you buy the whole set, there is so much fun to be had with Lego Dimensions. Mashing up characters and worlds is pure genius and the NFC base takes things to a new level for the 'toy-to-life' category. You just need to resist the urge to splash out on the entire collection.
Mario + Rabbids KIngdom isn't going to be a game that appeals to everyone with the slow pace and limited gameplay. It would need to be full multiplayer rather than optional co-op with a range of modes for that. However, it does have fun and casual nature and an easy going game for younger players to pick up.
